Rim color

Just got new 33x12.5x15 Duratracs installed. What do you say white rims or black? I'm leaning toward white but 2 friends say black.

If it was a CJ I say white, but on your Jeep I say black even though I'm so tired of black wheels on every Jeep. That Jeep is badass by the way.

These Goodyear duratracs are amazing compared to the goodyear mtrs that I had on there. They are for sure lighter and ride much smoother. They measure out to only 32" on a 15x8 @35psi.

I agree that the white is just a little too much CJ.

But, black is not the answer. I know its all the rage, but to me, black wheels might as well be just the plainest wheel because you cant see how fancy it is except in the catalog. They look like plain black voids in the wheel wells at more tham arms length.

I would go with the stock silver(argent) six spoke wheels. They retain the YJ vibe, but you can see the wheels against the blackness of the rest of the jeep.

If you wanted to be a little different, how bout painting them gold like the golden eagle trim. I know that was a CJ, but they made a TJ version too. Or find or paint some gold ravine wheels. Like the TJ.

I had this same idea to paint golden eagle gold, but for the 80's style wrangler wheels..

I know the black is getting played out so I did a little accent to break it up. And they are plasti dip so easily changeable

I have always preferred the rugged look... no caps.... and fewer pieces.

So I finally primed the white ones. They look good flat. The gloss on the other side looks good too. Opinions?

I've never seen a lifted Renegade before. And that color looks great on it.

Post a few photos !

Black...not that you are trying to match anything but white wheels look like that would be the only white parts on the jeep? I like the flat black but also agree its easier to clean the gloss. I've had my jeep for 5 years now and just washed it last month, only because I wanted to wax and remove some oxidation. 👍
